Summary
A compilation of experimental films by Stan Brakhage. Cat's cradle: Sexual witchcraft involving two couples and a medium cat. Window water baby moving: Brakhage's treatment of the birth of his daughter. Sirius remembered: Coming to terms with the decay of death and the decay of the memories of a loved one who has died. Dead: A very sombre and intense visual poem, a black lyric exercise on time and eternity. Thigh line lyre triangular: Patterns that move out from the inside of the mind through the optic nerves--"spots before my eyes; an intensive, disturbing, but joyful experience." Mothlight: Brakhage made this film without a camera. He just pasted mothwings and flowers on a clear strip of film and ran it through the printing machine
